Aruba, Jamaica oooh I wanna take ya, to Bermuda, Bahama come on pretty mama! Remember the Beach Boys summer song Kokomo? Well, if you do, sing it in your head (or out loud why not!), while looking at this 250-year-old home on Jamaica’s north shore.
The authenticity of the materials on this house’s exterior―from centuries-old limestone to classic cedar shingles―give it true island charm. Rainwater runs off the roof and funnels into catchments, supplying the house’s water.
In the kitchen, pickled wood covers the walls and ceiling. I like the window’s old brass curtain rod.
The master bedroom with tricky angles. The owner is going to bump his head if he leans back!
Love the diluted terra cotta-coloured paint on the dining room walls.
The porch chairs were painted to match the Agapanthus in the garden.
